    Saw was knocked down for $140, so $178.64 after fees.
    That's a good price per kg!

    Great going ... sometimes you get uber lucky, it's a game of pot luck!

    I didn't buy it! )
    There is seriously no room left in the shed until I get a new space (work in progress... as I can barely turn around in my current two double garages) and any big new machines are off limits. I've already got 5 project machines stored in my son's garage
    I was just watching the auction to see what it went for.
    Still at that price it might have been worth the 7 hours of driving with a trailer!
    There a nice looking L.S. Barker jointer going this week too...

    You sound like me - I am way through a Wadkin PK Dimension Saw & Wadkin BRA Radial Arm Saw restoration so I have bits sprinkled across my workshop with no room to move or do any actual wood working!

    I only have 2-3hr here and there so its been very start stop on occasional weekends - definitely something I question why I went down the restore path, mind you both saws were what I would call rough and need TLC at the very least.

    What it has taught me is you can fully strip down a Wadkin PK into all it's components in a day but to clean it up to bare metal, body filler, re-coat with paint takes a lot longer than anticipated.
